|First time setting foot outside|
Even though Jaide has been walking quite well for a while now, she has yet to venture a step outdoors. Wanna guess the reason? She hated wearing shoes!!!
We have a pair of pink hand-me-downs shoes from a friend, a pair of white lacy ones, a pair of yellow crocs and another pair of black velvet dress shoes to be worn for my sis-in-law's wedding dinner. However, no matter how many times I tried with lots of coaxing, she refused to wear any of them. In fact, she would cry the moment I even attempted to put them on.
Finally, I was so desperate that I took her to Kiddy Palace to choose her own shoes, in the hope that one of them would catch her fancy. I was prepared to spend the money even if she were to pick an expensive pair.
I took all sorts of colors and designs to see if she wanted them but to avail. Thankfully, she spotted a pair of white "My Little Pony" shoes with pink trimmings and asked for those. The moment they reached her hands, she was unwilling to let go of them. She was beaming from ear to ear and keep carassing the shoes. I heaved a sigh of relief when I found out that the price was reasonable and proceeded to the counter to pay up. The funnist thing was, she cried when I tried to take them to the cashier! In the end, I had to get another pair exactly the same design and size to buy. I asked the lady to cut the tags and I hurriedly placed them on her feet. It was then that she could bear to release the ones in her hands to be placed back on the shelf! LOL
I'm so glad that the shoes crisis is over and Jaide, at long last, can join her siblings in exploring places on her own two feet. *grin*
